Windows Phone Games

Several months ago we took a look at the Windows Phone game HiLight that is more or less a picturesque game of Simon Says. The multi-level game presents you with a sequence of lighted circles that flash and you have to repeat the pattern by tapping on the circles. You start out with only four lights and slowly build up to levels with fifteen lighted circles.

Available for low-memory Windows Phones, the game was updated a few weeks ago to version 1.0.1219.2, which adds a new gaming mode, new rankings and personal gaming stats. HiLight came across as an entertaining Windows Phone game to pass the time with and the new game mode only adds to HiLight's appeal.

Death Board is a Windows Phone game that has the potential to drive you nuts. It is a game that challenges you to quickly find a matching number before the game clock strikes zero.

While the game concept sounds simple, you only have a few seconds on the clock and it's surprising how long it takes to have four digit numbers register in your brain. I'm not sure how much staying power Death Board will have but for occasional gaming or as a conversation piece, the game should do well.

Available for low-memory Windows Phones, don't be shocked if your score stays in the single digits with Death Board.
